CARLE PLACE, NY – On Monday, April 6th 2015, 1-800-Flowers.com celebrated Take Your Mom to Work Day by inviting a group of 17 Moms of some of our amazing staff members. Their day began with a greeting from CEO and founder, Jim McCann. Moms then joined their children on our “red carpet” for a photo opportunity which our sister brand, Personalization Universe, later turned into a keepsake they can hold on to for years to come.
After they were done striking their best pose, the Moms then participated in a floral arrangement workshop instructed by Floral Designer, Phil Devito. The Moms then helped spread the smiles by donating their handmade floral arrangements to the ER staff ant Winthrop Hospital in Mineola, NY.
After a long morning of learning the flower arranging craft, Moms were treated to a brunch where they were serenaded by some of our staff members with an acoustic guitar and vocal set. The Moms then continued their day by learning a bit more about the company their children work for with a behind-the-scenes look at our product development and growing fruit bouquets business.
The day ended on a sweet note with Moms departing with a Thank You Bag filled with a variety of treats from our Sister brands. Each gift bag included:
In addition to the gift bags, both Moms and their children took home a day of memories they won’t soon forget. One Mom, Sharon Trench, remarked, “Over the years Kelly and I have shared many wonderful times, which has led to many heartfelt memories. I can honestly say..my day at work with her has quickly become one of my fondest memories. Thanks to the wonderful staff at 1800Flowers. Truly amazing!”
